Ask the People - Western Star joins SaltWire

In the biggest east coast media shakeup in recent memory, owners of Halifax’s venerable Chronicle Herald have quietly scooped up Transcontinental Inc.’s entire roster of stalwart Atlantic-Canadian local newspapers and websites — including The Western Star in Corner Brook.

The historic move — which saw the Quebec printing and media giant sell a combined 28 publications and web brands, as well as printing and distribution assets, to the Chronicle Herald — creates a media chain that covers every major market in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, as well as Newfoundland and Labrador. It even extends into a sliver of New Brunswick with The Sackville Tribune-Post.
Question: What are your thoughts on the sale and what are you hoping it will mean when it comes to local media coverage?
